Congratulations to the entire @StanfordWBB team and to Coach VanDerveer. What a win. Home of Champions! Go Card!

Woods knows a thing or two about championships. Before the golfer won 15 major professional titles, he was the individual national champion while representing Stanford at the 1996 NCAA Division I men's championship. He also won three straight U.S. Amateur titles, the last two of which came when he was enrolled at the school.

The 45-year-old is recuperating from a single-car crash in February that left him with comminuted open fractures to his tibia and fibula.

If Woods was following along with the action at home, then he watched an instant classic. The Cardinal prevailed after Arizona star Aari McDonald missed a jumper at the buzzer, securing the program's third national championship.
